By The Baseball Beginnings Guy
June 20, 2012
Ty Buttrey is a guy I liked last summer. Then I only shot one pitch, which was stupid. Anyhow, he went good and made some money. Here then, are my notes from last August on him turned from scouting card lingo into narrative:
“Fair delivery, a little under the ball, tall broad and lean with raw arm strength, loose and easy for a big guy. Fastball 91-92, heavy ball, flashed tail and sink, showed early signs of control. Potential workhorse should have upside.”
